Obituary for John Kenneth Fratrik

March 2, 1968 - February 10, 2017
Warrington, Pennsylvania | Age 48


John Kenneth Fratrik, 48, of Warrington, PA, went to be with his lord Friday, February 10, 2017. Born March 2, 1968, in Doylestown, PA, son of the late Kenneth and Joy (Grater) Fratrik. Preceded in death by his nephew, Kevin Potter. Survived by his sister, Sherry Fratrik, and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

John grew up on Ferry Road in Point Pleasant and attended Central Bucks East High School. The Fratrik family enjoyed many family vacations, picnics and parties together. Baseball games at the diamond behind the house was also a favorite pastime.
While roofing at his job, John had an accident that left him a paraplegic. He had great hopes to be able to walk again. He had an amazing will to live, he had hand control cars and lawnmowers and kept himself busy and in shape at his family home. John loved his Pontiac Firebirds, and worked on them himself as often as he could.

John's nightly calls to his grandmother, Phyllis Grater, kept up his hopes and made him happy. He had many favorite TV programs including Crime Investigation, Gas Monkey Garage, Cooking shows, and watched them with his cousin and best friend, Bob Garges.

John had strong faith and loved reading. He also loved animals, especially his cats, Buddy and Missy, who could often be found sleeping with him.
Thanks to all the nurses, doctors, aides and Harris pharmacy, who helped him and knew him throughout his life. He always wanted to do things himself. He made every effort to take care of himself medically and physically as long as he could. His Sister, Sherry, was a great comfort to him his last weeks as she often slept by his bed, brought his favorite treats and consoled him.

John will be missed by all who knew him and his beautiful spirit.
